Describe your experience with University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
There are some great doctors in this clinic. The nursing staff is amazing and part of the reason I’ve stayed. They answer messages promptly through e care and that’s very helpful. While I did switch RE’s I felt that this clinic had a better baseline understanding of my history and so I’ve stayed with UW
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My medical history led the doctor to believe that I would not have any sort of response to any drugs they could provide to help my body ovulate. I felt like I wasn’t given a chance based on my medical history and this made me feel like a number that no one wanted to work with
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff here is AMAZING. They are so kind, and compassionate. They laugh with you, they remember you and they fight for you.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
- Failed to call with results
- Failed to order appropriate test
How was your experience with Genevieve Neal-Perry?
Strength - she explains the medical aspect of hormones, and how drugs work with your system very well. I did appreciate that. However, I had a pretty strong understand already of how things worked, based on my previous medical history.
Cons - while she took time to listen, it felt that I was just a number. And a number that wouldn’t yield any result. We did the first IUI and while it was negative, there was still hope and I wish I had felt some of that from the doctor. I understand they need to be honest with you based on your results, and I know that’s why my experience was the way it was.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Genevieve Neal-Perry?
You need to come prepared with what you want out of your appointment. I left confused a few times, and I want people to know that sometimes you have to fight for what you believe and what you want. She’s great if you’re willing to make your case
Describe the protocols Genevieve Neal-Perry used in your cycles and their degree of success.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Genevieve Neal-Perry.
